The 17th edition of Sofia LGBTI Community Fest will be held in Sofia December 5-18, said the Bilitis non-profit organization, which is organizing the two-week festival. Its programme includes multiple events focused on LGBTI and feminist issues.
Mottoed Queer without Borders, the festival aims to put on the agenda of society issues of importance for the LGBTI community and provide a platform for information, support, interaction and entertainment.
Some of the key events this year are workshops for poetry, for taking a civil stand by using visual materials, an exhibition on the Iran protests, lectures on neurodiversity and how it relates with queer identity, among others.
The organizers invite people to join the events "with an open heart and mind" and enjoy the diversity of human identities.
